Yellowjacket in the driveway

Well, I flew up to Roswell (Atlanta) and picked it up. Fairly seemless purchase. Found out the car sits considerably lower in the front than my R/T and have already damaged the lower air dam. Love the power of the 392 6 speed, and the feel of how it handles. The exterior look is sportier and more aggressive as well. But I must say I like the interior of the 2010 Det Yellow R/T Classic better. All leather seats, carbon fiber dash/console plates and better stereo in my opinion. The 730N just seems to have a deeper richer sound than the 430N the Yellowjacket has. All and all it was well worth the 41k for an enthusiast like me. I did sell my R/T to my best friend who is thrilled

Where are you from? How many miles to get home?
Post a picture next to your old car when your friend brings it by.

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is
impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.
